GET NZ WRITING

What it says:
Arikirangi is a born leader,
Arikirangi is an awesome treasure of gold,
Arikirangi is winter, fun festive,
Arikirangi is Goku a fearsome warrior,
Arikirangi is Shrek; brave and caring,
Arikirangi is Kyrie Irving the best basketball player.

We recently received our buddy classes package for GET NZ WRITING. It was a Maori-speaking school located in Wellington. One of the tasks for GET NZ WRITING was writing a Metaphor poem (Above). I liked the metaphor poem that I got because this person compares themself to famous characters and sports people.

The Harrison Poem

Today I am posting my metaphor poem.

Harrison is a ripped parcel
Sitting there collecting dust on the bottom shelf

Harrison is a rainbow kite
Swirling around creating colour all over the sky
Creating a marvellous visual effect

Harrison is the emoji keyboard
Who can change emotions at the tap of a screen

Whenever I peer into the mirror
Harrison beams right back at me
It’s really funny

Harrison is a car with no end destination
Cruising down the motorway
Changing speed as it goes

Harrison is 8 letters
Lifted from the historical Alphabet of the ancient Greeks

Look over there
Bits of fire shooting out from that flamethrower
Jumping from log to log
I chase it down with a portable fire hydrant

They might be Harrison

Summer Learning Journey Week 4 Day 5 Bonus Activity

I believe that in 100 years people will live in very techoly based apartments. Where all of the food will be printed through advanced versions on 3D Printers that would have advanced in so many different ways. I also believe that people wouldn't really be working as robots would be able to do most jobs themselves. The only jobs that humans would have would be programing the robots to do the jobs.

My favrioute song is titled Galway Girl and it is by Ed Sheeran.

Lyrics:
She played a fiddle in an Irish band
But she fell in love with an English Man
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
Said, "baby, I just want to dance"

I meet her on Grafton street right outside of the bar
She share a cigarette with me while her brother played the guitar
She asked me what does it mean, the Gaelic ink on your arm?
Said it was one of my friend's songs, do you want to drink on?
She took Jame as a chaser, Jack for the fun
She got Arthur on the table with Johnny riding as a shotgun
Chatted somer more, one more drink at the bar
Then put Van on the jukebox, got up to dance

She played a fiddle in an Irish band
But she fell in love with an English Man
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
Said, "baby, I just want to dance"
With, my pretty little Galway girl
You're my pretty little Galway girl

You know she beat me at darts and then she beat me at pool
And the she kissed me like there was nobody else in the room
As last orders were called was when she stood on the stool
After dancing to Kaleigh, singing to trad tunes
I never heard Carrickfergus ever sang so sweet
A capella in the bar using her feet for a beat
Oh, I could have that voice playing on repeat for a week
And in this packed out room swear she was singing to me

She played a fiddle in an Irish band
But she fell in love with an English Man
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
Said, "baby, I just want to dance"
My pretty little Galway girl
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway girl
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway girl
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway girl

And now we've outstayed our welcome and it's closing time
I was holding her hand, her hand was holding mine
Our coats both smell of smoke, whisky and wine
As we fill up our lungs with the cold air of the night
I walked her home then she took me inside
To finish some Doritos and another bottle of wine
I swear I'm gonna put you in a song that I write
About a Galway girl and a perfect night

She played a fiddle in an Irish band
But she fell in love with an English Man
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
Said, "baby, I just want to dance"
My pretty little Galway girl
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway girl
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway girl
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway girl, hey
